More Movie Mumblings

Eight years ago half the people in my township started getting premium cable for free. The cable company asured us that this was a temporary situation caused by their updating technology that required them to remove whatever devices they have that differentiate between basic packages and advanced packages, and rather than piss off their premium subscribers they decided to give everyone a two-month preview package of the full deal. Except that at the end of this period, my family still had the premiums. We didn't order it, and we were even honest and called the cable company about it. They decided that it wasn't worth the money to disconnect us so they let us keep it for free. By the time our line needed servicing my parents were so addicted to Sex and the City that they decided to spring for HBO. The net result of all of this is I was able to catch a midnight showing of Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. The usual overanalysis follows, including a summary since nobody actually saw Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. I do make use of spoilers because there really is no excuse to see this movie, but just in case I've put it behind a cut.
